funny as heck. and i have a guest in the studio. a friend of mine here. and he bought his dad a mail box. >> tonight on huckabee. insurgents are sweeping over iraq and sweeping to the cant kament. >> it is not like we haven't sewn it coming. what is the president thinking now? any action that we may take to provide security have to be joined by a sen sear effort by iraq's leaders. we can't do it for them. and >> they are afraid the republican establishment is left
them behind. sergeant bergdahl is back in the u.s. reaction tonight. >> welcome to huckabee. we are coming to you from the los angeles fox news burro. eric cantor got shown the door and no one saw it coming. the hou he was the first to be not reelected. explanations running all over the map for cantor's stunning defeat. tea party influence and cantor's support for immigration reform. and better to the washington crowd than to his direct. and raising $22 for every dollar
david brat had. they were all a factor. but i don't think david brat is giving enough credit. he is an economic's professor and an articulate and common sense candidate. it was not what cantor did wrong. but what brat did right. he connected about free markets and spoke about making sure laws applied to big boys on wall street not only too big to fail but to big to jail. if the average american worker struggling to put food on the table. gamed the system they would have gone to jail. and brat had the a udasity to suggest they should. eric cantor spent more campaign money on steak houses than brat's campaign. and that was out of touch as
hillary clinton whining that they were struggling to pay taxes on the 10 million. and paltry 200 million on speeches that bill was having. people in the real world are struggling. they are not opposed to immigration because they are racist. they are opposed for government developing job killing regulation. and deporting the few jobs. if mexico will not let one marine loose from the prisop, americans are not keen on mexico sending several million of their folks over the border. if tax paying americans have to be showing an id and be stefrp searched just to board a plan from dallas to san antonio.
they don't want people to get jobs without passing a background check. americans are not mean. not at all. we are generous and tolerant and welcoming people on earth. if you don't believe that, then try to cross the border in to mexico and demand that you want your instructions in england and want free food or health care and education and you want to continue to celebrate the 4th of july and expect the government to let you vote in mexico. americans are not mad people want to come here. we thank food every night that we live in a country people are trying to break into rather than breaking out of. but if our government is secowering jobs for people who are here illegally before the american is thes, then eric cantor will not be the last to go. >> more on what cantor's defeat may mean for the gop later in
the show. first, iraq is on the brink of civil war. just over two years after president obama with drou the u.s. troops from the country islamic mill at that point its took over major cities in the north and west and fallujah and ramadi and marching to baghdad. on saturday, iran's country will be ready to help iraq if anded and hundreds of iraqi men are joining the fight against the terror group. and on friday, president obama will not commit to helping an iraqi government that is not able to resolve the differences to defend itself. frustrated iraq war veterans who fought so hard to secower iraq's freedom call it a punch in the gut. my first son lived in tick rit one of the assistant district attorneys that fell back in enemy hands and had a task force
that was co in the hunt of saddam hussein hussein. lieutenant steve russell joins me now. >> cornell. i want to mention one of the people reviewing the book made this comment. it was brilliant. it is a treasure for war colleges, war classes yet unborn. and your book told how it ought to be done. you were there and you and those serving with you shed blood to get saddam hussein. i want a personal reaction. how does this hit you as you watch how it unfold. >> i am wived about my friends tikrit and we are talking to each other when we have vacation time we ought to go straighten it out. it is hard to describe.
because it is so preventible, governor. >> let's talk about that. how could we not have seen this coming? with the extraordinary resources that our country has in intelience both on the ground and overseas and in the air. how could we not have sewn something brewing before it came to this level? >> well, i think one of the problems that we have seen, is that we have ignored history, after every conflict resolution in the last 125 years, we have had an agreement. status of forces and we have left a contifrmgency of troops behind that planted an american flag. if you pick on the brother you get big brother with. it and instead. we opted for the political root and ignored good policy. and without a status of fourses agreement and an american
presence. we signal to the enemies that they can fill the void and it looks like they have. was this an intelligence failure or a strategy failure? >> i think it is a combination of both. what we have sewn with the islamic state of iraq and syria. they are squeezed out of certain portions of syria and they are moving on the old bathist network. and they are trying to unite sunni arabs in this twisted islamic state. they are largely secularist and they don't want a radical government in charge. and so they are caught in between. they have a shiite led government that will not power share with them. they are squeezed on both ends and have no recourse. and now they see american
allies, that had tried to convince them and said if you will join the surge and you will have the sons of iraq movement and put this together we'll secure it and hand over a great government and you will be in good shape and they did that. and this president in trying to get us to end the war in iraq, it looks like he is instead ending iraq. >> that is a powerful statement. it is ending iraq. it could be on the brink of utter a nilation. and iran for heaven sakes to say they will try to fix it. let me ask this. i wonder, is the president listening to anybody in the military or pentagon? if he's not, if you could whisper in his ear as he comes out to california to play golf in palm springs.
what would you say to the president? to get the situation under control. >> two things need to be done. first, he did not listen to department of defense and service chiefs and combatant commanders in 2011 and 12. they warned him it would happen and it is fully on the roar. it is not irreversible. two courses of action needs to happen. the prime minister there needs to reach out to kureds and sunni arabs in the north and tell them look, we all agree we don't want a gihaddist islamic state. and i willpower share. you will have key post and cabinet and parliment and leadership positions. and these are the types of things that will unite iraqis and they will so a vision for the future.
malaki decided not to do this after he resecured his election and we have the situation that we have. the president on the other hand needs to provide resources and show strength and provide whatever it is intelligence and drone and air strike wise. and show we will not let this investment go, they are all things that should be on the table and we should be moving on quickly. it is not irreversible. but it is sending a terrible message to our allies, if you are in trouble whether you are in ukraine or iraq, the united states is disengaged and will not help you. >> what a sad message. cornell thank you for being here. >> thank you, sir, appreciate. it >> coming up. a california congressman's reaction to iraq and bowe bergdahl's return to the united

it is spiralling out of control. what are your major concerns as we watch these events unfold? >> first of all, there will be people who say i told you so. i think that it is not an appropriate time to do. that we have thousands of people, our americans in iraq right now. and if there is anything we learned from benghazi, we need to protect our people and that should be our number one priority. i loved to play golf, but if the president is really playing golf this weekend it is a shame. it is a very serious crisis and this idea of leading from behind and hands off approach is not working. we need to lead from in front and to do that, we have to stop cutting our national security resources. in the last couple of years, we have cut a trilliop dollars out
of our national security and we are paying the price for it. >> one of the things that the colonel mentioned was no force agreement and at least have a presence there. looking back, was that a fundmental mistake that was made here in >> no question. it is very obvious. if we had left a presence behind and able to negotiate that status of force agreement we would not have this problem now. it is very important we don't have that in afghanistan. we negotiated that in afghanistan and the president made a decision to leave 9800 troops behind. nato will add 5,000 troops and they will be there to make sure the same scenario does not play out in afghanistan. >> sergeant bergdahl is back on american soil, but the taliban five, desplate and dangerous
people are off in the middle east and supposedly in qattar safely. we don't have illusioned they will check in the local holiday inn and take it easy. what concerns do you have? you chair one of the important positions in congress. shouldn't there be conversation going on between the administration and folks like you and in your position before this deal was made? >> the hearing that we have with the secretary and their legal council, i walked out of there learning several things. number one that we did negotiate with terrorist which breaks a long- time precedent. and number two, because of that, we're less safe than we were just a few weeks ago. the fact that they kept congress in the dark, for several months, had 80 or 90 people that people
coming forth and not a single elected member in congress, it really boggles the mind. they briefed us on this earlier and congress pushed back on it and that's the reason they didn't tell us about it this time. and my concern is that they broke the law. we passed a law that said before you move any detainees out of guantanamo, you give congress 30 days notice so that we can look at it and see what a problem that will cause in the future. and they didn't do it and frankly, i am concerned that this sets a precedents saying there were circumstances as such we will not tell congress. that is not going to fly. >> it shouldn't fly. you are entrusted with the responsibility of oversight. you can't do that if the administration doesn't understand constitutional obligation to work with you.
